DEFAULTIPSITELINK purpose

I have created 3 sites in AD sites and services, by default they all showed up in the DEFAULTIPSITELINK
If I delete the DEFAULTIPSITELINK, would the sites still be linked?
Or I will have to create manually a new site link or site links and link the sites in appropriate way.
I thought as long as the Bridge All Site Link is ticked , I don't have to create site links manually.

Thanks

No, you need a site link between your sites - this is a representation of the physical link between your two sites.
A site link bridge is different. This bridges two site links, meaning that the sites involved are also linked, i.e A is linked to B, B is linked to C. If you create a site link bridge between the two site links, then A is linked to C. If 'bridge all site links' is ticked then all site links are bridged by default. You won't see any site link bridges in AD Sites and Services, because they are automatically handled by the Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC). You don't have to worry about it. But you do need to be able to see the site link.
You need to have a site link between your two sites. If you've deleted the automatically created on, it's not problem. Just create a new link in the IP folder, link the two sites. If you've only got two sites, the cost is irrelevant (as you've only got one link anyway). You need to schedule the replication interval based on the availability and bandwidth of the link between the two sites. This value is in minutes. (i.e. replicate every 60 minutes)
